Hum Ne Jinke Khwaab Sajaaye

Dev Saab – the phenomena continues.  With coming newer generation, it may fade away.  But there is still many more generations to go before that can happen.

Remembering Dev Saab on the anniversary of his birth today – 26th September.  He would have been 92 years young today.  And I am sure, he is, wherever he maybe now.

I recall a cartoon that once appeared in a magazine, many years ago.  The dashing and the dapper image was at its height.  He was continuing to woo younger and ever younger ladies on the screen.  The cartoon – it simply showed that the water supply to Dev Saab’s home is connected to the heavens, getting a direct supply of ‘amrit’ – the secret behind his defiance of the passage of years.

A lot else may have, and has happened in the cine interests in my heart.  But that enchantment with this hero from the 1950s and 60s, remains unchanged and the continued interest is unabated.  The search now is for the films that are not yet available.  Like ‘Afsar’ from 1950, or ‘Kahin Aur Chal’ from 1968. The aura of mystery and enthrallment sustains, even though decades have passed.  Ah yes, he would have been 92 today, in terms of calendar years.  But in the heart, he continues to be that sharp featured alluring face with a smile that shows one tooth slightly askew, making it all the more attractive, singing “Aankhon Hi Aankhon Mein Ishaara Ho Gaya” in the film ‘CID’ (1956).

As I was searching for a song to post for this celebration, as is my habit, I started from the beginning of his career, to identify that earliest song that had not yet been posted.  I went through the decades and reached almost to the end of 1960s before I could locate an un-posted song from his career. And then intervened this song, from a film that was partially made, but then never completed. The heroine is Sadhna, and so it is possible that this is one of those films that became a casualty of her break from active career on account of health problems.

The film is ‘Saajan Ki Galiyaan’.  There is information available about this film, in that this film got represented in the 1983 film called ‘Film Hi Film’.  This film, i.e. ‘Film Hi Film’ is a story about a lowly film producer in Bombay (role played by Pran) and his efforts to complete the film he is making.  In the journey of completing his film, he takes us through many topics of creating cinema.  The specific attraction of this film is that this discussion is interlaced with actual footage of many clips from films that were started, partially shot, and then never completed.  In that mixture, we get to see two songs of this incomplete film of Dev Anand and Sadhna.  As per records, this would have been only their third film together, after ‘Hum Dono’ (1960) and ‘Asli Naqli’ (1962).

[On a side note; during my recent visit to Bombay, Bakshi ji and I had visited the home of Shahab Ahmed, the producer of ‘Film Hi Film’.  It was an interesting discussion.  He shares that over 2,000 films are still sitting in the store rooms of old processing labs.  It is a losing proposition, as the costs to maintain and safe-keep the films is prohibitive, and progressively this material is being lost.  The labs are closing doors, and for the lack of any other legal way to disposition this collection, they are simply throwing this treasure into fire.  My heart shudders at this state of affairs.  But more about that later.]

The lyrics for this song are written by Hasrat Jaipuri.  And the music is by Shankar Jaikishan.  The singing voice is that of Rafi Sb.  Listen closely and you will realize that this is a short ghazal that has been tuned into this wonderful song. The words – they are simple yet exquisite.  A portrayal of a first meeting, with someone who thus far has just been present in the dreams.

Back in 1966, this film would have been a contemporary of the likes of ‘Guide’ (1965), ‘Teen Devian’ (1965) and ‘Jewel Thief’ (1967), had it been completed and released.  The restrained, and heartfelt performance is a treat to watch.  Especially since this is a rare, unreleased clip.

Wonderful memories, Dev Saab – “. . . Aaj Wo Mere Saamne Hain”.

Enjoy.

 

Song – Hum Ne Jinke Khwaab Sajaaye (Saajan Ki Galiyaan) (UR) (1966) Singer – Mohammed Rafi, Lyrics – Hasrat Jaipuri, MD – Shankar Jaikishan

Lyrics

hum ne jinke
khwaab sajaaye
aaj wo mere saamne hain
dil ki haalat
haaye re haaye
aaj wo mere saamne hain
hum ne jinke
khwaab sajaaye

duniya bhar ki khushiaan aa gaeen
simat ke mere pehlu mein
duniya bhar ki khushiaan aa gain
simat ke mere pehlu mein
kuchh hairaan
aur kuchh sharmaaye
aaj wo mere saamne hain
hum ne jinke
khwaab sajaaye

masti se makhmoor nigaahen
qaatil qaatil shokh adaa
masti se makhmoor nigaahen
qaatil qaatil shokh adaa
ab to khuda hi
dil ko bachaaye
aaj wo mere saamne hain
dil ki haalat
haaye re haaye
aaj wo mere saamne hain
hum ne jinke
khwaab sajaaye

do naina kuchh keh ke chuke hain
bhed bhari hain ye baaten
do naina kuchh keh ke chuke hain
bhed bhari hain ye baaten
kya samjhoon aur
koi samjhaaye
aaj wo mere saamne hain
dil ki haalat
haaye re haaye
aaj wo mere saamne hain
hum ne jinke
khwaab sajaaye

हमने जिनके
ख्वाब सजाये
आज वो मेरे सामने हैं
दिल की हालत
हाय रे हाय
आज वो मेरे सामने हैं
हमने जिनके
ख्वाब सजाये

दुनिया भर की खुशियाँ आ गईं
सिमट के मेरे पहलू में
दुनिया भर की खुशियाँ आ गईं
सिमट के मेरे पहलू में
कुछ हैरान
और कुछ शरमाये
आज वो मेरे सामने हैं
हमने जिनके
ख्वाब सजाये

मस्ती से मख़मूर निगाहें
क़ातिल क़ातिल शोख अदा
मस्ती से मख़मूर निगाहें
क़ातिल क़ातिल शोख अदा
अब तो खुदा ही
दिल को बचाए
आज वो मेरे सामने हैं
दिल की हालत
हाय रे हाय
आज वो मेरे सामने हैं
हमने जिनके
ख्वाब सजाये

दो नैना कुछ कह के चुके हैं
भेद भरी हैं ये बातें
दो नैना कुछ कह के चुके हैं
भेद भरी हैं ये बातें
क्या समझूँ और
कोई समझाये
आज वो मेरे सामने हैं
दिल की हालत
हाय रे हाय
आज वो मेरे सामने हैं
हमने जिनके
ख्वाब सजाये

True. Even after his demise we still dream of him
jaise aaj wo mere saamne hain.
Aur dil ki haalat haaye re haaye
